The Best Cool Therapy for Pain Relief

Recently, I was in pain on my left knee (the one which I got surgery on early February this year). I am used to leading my life actively so...I was really forgetful to be extra careful about it. If you read my blog post before this, I wrote on my experience Glamping at Tiarasa Escapes Resort, Janda Baik. I did jog around the resort and carried some heavy stuff around. My Doctor has warned me to not put any pressure or weight on my knee since its already exhausted. Regretfully, I was overexcited during the trip and end up did something which leads to my condition right now.

YES! I am back to the time right after the surgery. I am now on crouches and the pain on the left knee kind of killing me. I took some medication but still, it doesn't help much to relieve my pain. So, in my case, I applied pain reliever cream. I know many will take pain relief cream light because you think this is just a temporary. For someone who doesn't ever experience pain may think this way. But for someone who has to live with pain, every relieving moment is precious.

As my Doctor told me to practise the RICE method which is :

R - Rest
I - Ice
C - Compression
E - Elevation

I did this whenever feel the pain. There is the time it's not convenient to ICE, especially when in public or travelling or even at work. I spare a pain relief cream that provides a cooling sensation which helps to distract the body from pain signals to ease comfort. It is really helpful especially during a meeting at work.

I have tried many cooling creams and gel pain reliever but so far Perozin Pain Relief Cream is the best suits me and my day to day life. The most important thing when choosing the Pain Relief Cream, I would go for no smells, not so overcooling sensation, easy absorption and ingredients.

My experience using Perozin

Just like its tag line 'Everyday Pain Reliever', I would say this suits PEROZIN. You can apply PEROZIN daily once and up to thrice a day. As for me, I applied this whenever I need to ease my pain. Just squeeze out a 20 cents size of Perozin cream and apply on the affected area. PEROZIN cream formula sinks into the skin and most of all the scent goes away very fast to ensure you don't smell like menthol or some ointment. So far, I have used PEROZIN to relieve my pain from the shoulder, knee and waist and it works well as anti-inflammatory. Don't even worry about greasiness. PEROZIN cream not even greasy to begin with. That's why I prefer Perozin among my other cooling therapy pain reliever cream or gel. 
As for smells, other than it quickly sinks into my skin, the cream itself smells pleasant therapeutic with its natural ingredients that suit various skin types.

PEROZIN natural ingredients include :

Rosemary - anti-inflammatory agent which helps to relieve pain.

Ginger - powerful antioxidants which help reducing swelling and always a good choice to improve osteoarthritis in knees.

Peppermint - contains menthol which provides a cooling sensation to help relieve inflammation and soothes muscle and joint swelling. 

PEROZIN is a product of Denmark and distributed by our well-known pharmaceutical company Pharmaniaga. If you have anyone in your family or yourself who need some pain reliever, Perozin is recommended since it doesn't use excessive menthol effect which will bring more harmful effect and in fact it uses natural ingredients such as peppermint for cooling effect.

Usual PEROZIN price at RM45.90 per 100ml tube. 

Currently, they are having a promotion. 

PEROZIN 100ml at RM39.00/ 1 tube
PEROZIN 100ml at RM50.50 / 2 tubes

Since you are my beloved readers, I will share you RM5 off for your PEROZIN purchase.
Just purchase RM50and above at worth of PEROZIN from RoyalePharma website.
Apply my voucher code PERO5RINA when you shop for your PEROZIN. Its time for you to gift your parent and friends with something more meaningful to their day to day life. 

Note that this voucher code valid until 31 July 2020.

Glamping Experience at Tiarasa Escapes Resort , Janda Baik Pahang

Recently, I have an opportunity to experience Glamping for the first time in my life. It was more of a short family vacation with two sisters and my parent. We drove all the way from KL to Janda Baik, Pahang. We reached there around 3pm on Friday. We chose a weekday to avoid the havoc weekend crowd. 

Tiarasa Escapes Resort is the luxury tented accommodation spread across 7 acres surrounded with beautiful lush green rainforest and small streams. You can find many dragonflies here. That shows the non-polluted environment. The brainchild of this amazing place is non-other than Puan Sri Tiara Jacquelina who is just like me a big fan of Enid Blyton 's Faraway Tree and Secret Seven series. I would say this place is more like a great city life escapes place.
She gets her inspiration from her stayed in Berber tent at Sir Richard Branson's Kasbah Tamadot in Morocco. 

This is the lounge near the reception area. The Pua Kumbu motive print spread and Iban styled handicraft decoration is everywhere.

I fall in love with the terrarium here. Don't forget to try out their welcome drink such as Lemongrass cooler. Taste super refreshing. 

There are 20 safari styled tented villas and 5 treetop villa sprawled around this beautiful landscape place.

Since there are 5 of us in the family, we checked in to Rajah Brooke 1 which is located near the reception with a beautiful blue lagoon pool front. You will see many lemongrasses around this place which makes the place fragrance with lemongrass scents. You can't find any mosquitoes flying around due to this awesome lemongrass scents.

There you go...our first safari styled tented experience. Rajah Brooke has 2 rooms which divided with the living room as a partition and it has 2 bathrooms too. The villa here has plenty of light due to the windows from the mesh. We draw down the curtains for our privacy since the pool was just right in front of our tent.

This is the look from one of the room. If you want to see the other room. Please check out my room tour video HERE.

Like I said earlier, there are 2 bathrooms. One with the door lock and one is a spacious bathroom with this open space tub and no door at all. Just a curtain. My sisters and I were so insecure to use this bathroom. It looks obviously stylish and like a dream house bathroom but ....we don't use to it when we have the chance. 

We ordered a picnic set by the stream. Since we are not a big eater so we ordered only one set which is for 2 people. 

I have the full view of the stream in my video. The small stream here comes from the Enderong River that runs along the resort. Yes! you can play inside this stream too. You can check out there. Love the sounds of water flowing and it was a sunny and windy day at the same time. I kind of love the atmosphere. It was not a usual activity for any of us, so it was wonderful to experience.

My sisters and I just have some photography session and explore the surrounding while waiting for our hi-tea set to be served. You can enjoy the swing and hammock but we just enjoy the swing while waiting.

The hi-tea set came with 2 packs of fried mee hoon, 3 tiers assorted local cakes like the mini banana balls, onde onde, dimsum, tarts, samosa and spring rolls, assorted fruits, orange drinks and hot tea.

Nighttime came. You can pay some money to the resort for a BBQ dinner and an open-air movie night. They also have a bonfire night where you can grill marshmallow too. I heard they will serve you with popcorn during dinner too. Our family are not wealthy to spend our hard earn money,  just like that. We wish to do all that too. But we spent quite a lot on this vacation already. Sooooo...

We ordered the room service for dinner during the check in to be served at 8pm. We only ordered 3 sets and 1 dessert to share among 5 of us. As I said we are not a big eater and the food came in a huge portion too.

We tried the highly recommended such as Nasi Ulam with Ayam Merah, Laksa Sarawak and the oxtail soup which serve with white rice. My Mum especially loves the oxtail soup and the brownies with ice cream. After dinner, we played some MGAG The Malaysia Dreams card and the Bad Dog game. ALERT! No TV here. So plan some activities to kill time.

Time to sleep. The room only has the fan and noisy portable air-cond. We off the air-cond since it was so noisy. We pull the canvas curtain down but since this is a tent-style concept, it still has the outdoor atmosphere with the wind pass through the mesh wire surrounding the tent. So, expect a chilly cold night with the sounds of crickets, frogs and other animals to accompany the rest of your night. 

For my case, I have froggy and cricket trying to invite me for karaoke session all night. huhuhuh....Did I sleep well? Obviously no. I am a light sleeper. The chill weather makes it worst for me. 

Since I don't really enjoy my sleep here. I went out for a morning walk to explore the resorts surrounding. I walked up to the treetop styled room and the vegetable farm which located right at the end of the resort. You can watch that in my video. It was a lovely morning and the air was so refreshing there. 

Both my sisters enjoy the trampoline jump for their first time in life. If my waist and knee are in good condition, I would jump in too. muahahaha....but I chose to walk and did some light run around the resort.

You can opt to have your breakfast picnic style by the stream or in the room too. We requested our breakfast to be served at the resort outdoor restaurant.  I was really glad that the weather was super nice that day. We enjoy our east meet western style of breakfast. The nasi lemak here was super duper delicious. The hot coffee was awesome too. 

We spend our time lazy around the resort and not once we feel bored here. Everything was awesome here. Money well spent! If you come with children, your children will enjoy it too. There are many fun activities waiting for them here. 

Overall, I will rate my first glamping experience here at Tiarasa Escapes as 5 stars for the ambience. I love the fresh air here which I seldom get it when in KL. Splurge a bit of your hard-earned money to reward yourself and enjoy this as once in a lifetime experience. Life is short!

Tiarasa Escapes - Glamping Resort @ Janda Baik Address : Persiaran Enderong, Kampung Janda Baik, 28750 Bentong , Pahang.

How To DIY Scented Candle using Beewax

My first-time candle making was during one of the beauty workshops, I attended a few years back. It was so much fun but as usual time constraint during this kind of workshop. So, I don't get to enjoy it longer. They taught us to meltdown the soy wax, then mix it with essential oil and decorate with some dried flowers back then.
I always wanted to try out bee wax candles making. I bought the bee wax last year. Finally, I have the courage to meltdown one on my own. I was a bit sceptical with my own ability to DIY this. hahaha... I gave this a shot, anyway! I have nothing to lose if this didn't work out. Oppssss...maybe some bee wax, my precious essential oil and time. muahahaha...

I don't really use any exact measurements. Everything just as what I feel right๐Ÿคญ.

Step 1 ๐Ÿ’ฎ Melt bee wax pellets. I used a double boiler as if melting chocolate.๐Ÿ˜

Step 2 ๐Ÿ’ฎ Take out from the heat after all the wax 100% melt. Wait for 3 seconds.

Step 3 ๐Ÿ’ฎ Mix with some Virgin Coconut oil. I just estimate around half of VCO from the melted wax. Stir the mixture well.

Step 4 ๐Ÿ’ฎ Drop in my favourite essential oils.  I used one batch lavender mix rose geranium EO and another batch I mixed lavender with lemon eo. Stir the mixture really well.

Step 5 ๐Ÿ’ฎ Pour in the melted wax mixture into the glass jar which already prepares with the wick of your choice. In this batch, I used wood wick. I soaked the wood wick with coconut oil and leave it overnight before place it in the glass jar.

Let your candle to rest for at least one or two days, to make sure the wax dries up really well to avoid any hollow or tunnel forming. I used bee wax instead of soy wax since I read the bee wax can function as an air purifier too.

I won't say this is a success until I am able to burn this candle in another 2 or 3 days. Do follow me in my instagram@cindyreena and Facebook page @Princesscindyrina for more results update.

Happy candle making.๐Ÿ˜

Why Skin Hydration is Important?

Hydrate! hydrate! that's the word the beautician keep telling me during my visit to facial treatment before MCO. At that point my thinking always..."I drink plenty of water what? What's the problem?" Well, the beautician obviously were talking about my skin hydration. As the ageing process, it is natural for our skin to lose up some of the essential nutrition just like our body too.

Dehydrated skin occurs when there's a lack of water in the skin. Not like you can feed your skin with water, right? 

How the dehydrated skin looks like?

Well, the dehydrated skin usually looks dull and show premature signs of ageing such as wrinkles and loss of elasticity. You can easily tell on the dehydrated skin if you notice some of the symptoms below :

* More sensitive fine lines and wrinkles start to appear
* You skin feel itchy
* Dull skin 
* Dark under-eye circles or your eyes always look tired and sunken.

Still unable to tell? You can do the simple dehydrated skin test at home, which I call it " Self pinching test".

Dehydrated skin test :

1. Pinch small portion of skin on your cheek, abdomen, check or even the back of your hand. Then hold for a few seconds.

2. Release it. Then if your skin snaps back or bounces back means you are likely safe. Not dehydrated.

3. If your skin takes a few seconds to bounce back means... you definitely need help. You are likely dehydrated.

You can repeat this process in other skin areas too.

By the way, don't get confused between dehydrated skin and dry skin. Dry skin most likely oily or combination skin where skin complexion lacks oils or lipids. If your skin appears flaky and dry appearance then most likely you are suffering for dry skin too.

Other dry skin symptoms:

* scaly appearance
* redness and irritation
* white flakes
* sudden eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis.

As for me, my skin is more dehydrated on the face and dry in the leg and other parts of the body.

I used to apply the whole range of dehydration skin series for my face skin and hydration lotion for other parts of the body. Since the hydration gets better.  These days, I more focus on brightening skincare series and just apply hydration face mask sheet on alternate days in a week. But the cost can be expensive.

Recently, I found a mask sheet which gives me up to 72 hours of hydration power. Yes! we are talking about a serum which will last on your skin for 3 days. I highly recommend this especially for a busy woman and also for those who are looking for cost efficiency skincare. Most of all, this mask is made in Malaysia. Yeah! I am playing my part in building up the economy by supporting local products.

IMBZ Infinite Hyaluronic Acid Silk Mask claimed as the world 1st Ultimate Hydrating Mask with 8 types of Hyaluronic Acid. I only know Hyaluronic Acid is one must-have ingredient for Hydration. I don't even know they have many types of Hyaluronic Acid.

Let me write through what is the 8 types of Hyaluronic Acid means :

1. Hyaluronic Acid 

Increases fundamental moisture inside of skin by promoting the generation of Aquaporic3.

2. Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid

Improves moisturizing level inside of skin maintaining moist skin.

3. Potassium Hyaluronate

Drags water from inside of the skin to the surface part, supplying moisture constantly.

4. Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate

Non-sticky, better affinity to the skin surface and moisture retention ability.

5. Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hyaluronate

A cationic hyaluronic acid which keeps water into the skin by forming moisture film.

6. Sodium Hyaluronate

Attracts water around the skin, preventing water from evaporation and forming a moisture film.

7. Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer

Keeps and store water in the skin and prevents wrinkles by forming moisturizing curtains.

8. Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate

Able to penetrate deep inside the skin due to its small-sized molecules through hydrolysis of Sodium Hyaluronate. 

IMBZ Infinite Hyaluronic Acid Silk Mask claimed 8 immediate beneficial effects with just 1 sheet :

* Hydrating
* Moisturizing
* Whitening
* Repair / Protecting
* Soothing
* Refining
* Purifying
* Re-energizing

My experience trying out IMBZ Infinite Hyaluronic Acid Silk Mask :

The silk mask sheet is really soft and soaked with essence. I applied it on well-cleansed skin for around 10 minutes. I don't want to soak more than 10 minutes and overdosed my skin. I was so pleased with the immediate effect with just one application.

Love that my dull skin turns out brighter than usual and the moisturising level is much better than usual. I could say my skin look much better and healthier even after 3 days. Good news for this lazy woman here. I can keep my skincare routine short. IMBZ gives me good skincare as if I have been applying the mask every day. Totally love the result of this mask. For a local product, I have nothing to say but praise for its good quality. This mask is suitable for all skin types too.

If you don't want to experience premature ageing, just keep your skin hydrated and don't give a lame 'I am busy!' excuse. It takes only 10 to 15 minutes of your time for every 72 hours of your time to care for your skin. You can never reverse back ageing but you can slow down the process. Hydrate! Hydrate! This routine is important for your skin. No one will love you unless you love yourself first!

Check below video of me trying out IMBZ Infinite Hyaluronic Acid silk mask.

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce our IMBZ Beauty a Malaysian brand name. They bring to you Malaysia's first and only fully mechanised sheet mask manufacturer. IMBZ mask sheet was created based on our busy life where everyone overemphasizes in speed and efficiency. Rather than spending more time in skincare and always giving no time to care for skin, IMBZ inspires to create skincare that is the most direct and easy way to cure skin problems in a targeted way.

Bye Bye Pores the All New Range From PINK By Pure Beauty

Have you heard about this brand Pink by Pure Beauty? You won't miss them if you are a frequent Watson store. The bright pink and vibrant packaging will definitely catch your girly eyes. Recently PINK by Pure Beauty returns with a comprehensive new range for a healthy skin that will leave your skin smooth and glowing. 

I have unboxed this full range of PINK by Pure Beauty for my skin testing for the review. So what is this new range all about?
The PINK by Pure Beauty latest range is targeting three key pores problems which are :

1. Clogged pores
2. Pigmented pores
3. Sagging pores

Do you know that it is important to maintain a clean pore and keep it healthy? Why is it important?
If you leave the excess oils, dirt and buildup in your pores it will increase sagging, stretching and enlarging of the pores. Don't complaint, I don't warn you on this! Don't complaint if other people skin is more beautiful than yours.

As for me, I always look for brightening features in my skincare since I have a dull skin condition. But at the same time, I don't neglect my pores to avoid sagging and unhealthy skin. 

What causes clogged pores and how to get rid of this?

Clogged pores cause by the excessive build-up of whiteheads and blackheads on your skin. If you don't have that budget to visit beauty centre for a few times a month treatment, then the only solution for clogged pores is to do deep cleansing and sebum regulation.

What causes pigmented pores and how to reduce this on your skin?

Pigmented pores can make your skin look really ugly. It usually causes by melanin generated inside pores dug to appear darker and pigmentation occurs around the pore area. You can reduce pigmented pores by deep cleansing and refine skin tone.

What causes sagging pores and how to firm it back up?

Well, sagging pores can make you look older than your original age. The sagging pores caused by the lack of elasticity and dryness of the pores. You can prevent this or counter this with pore tightening, pore minimizing and hydration.

You don't have that big beauty funds for a thousand beauty centre skin treatment? Don't worry! You can get your own pore treatments and maintain healthy-looking pores with Pink by Pure Beauty new range Bye Bye Pores which easily available at your favourite store Watson.

This newest range Bye Bye Pores from PINK by Pure Beauty main ingredients is its potent pink flower complex and the powers of Korea's famous Jeju's Volcanic ash and thermal spring water which added its glowing magic. Those two ingredients blend up together with pink clay and newly added ingredient activated carbon, this will generate to tighten the pores, control oil and refine the skin. The newly added ingredients key purpose is for sebum control which is to purify dead skin and absorb excessive sebum.

Let me write through the full range of Bye Bye Pores from PINK by Pure Beauty.

Bye Bye Pore Cleansing Foam

This is a mild foaming cleanser. You just need to lather the cleanser onto your palm softly and gently clean your face with it before wash off thoroughly from your skin. It helps to rinse away dirt and impurities and leave your skin clean and soft.

Bye Bye Pore Toner

To me it just a usual toner texture. The lightweight, fast-absorbing feature makes me love this more and more. It helps to soothe and hydrates skin by removing residue left on the skin.

Bye Bye Pore Essense

This silky smooth light pink essence helps to moisturiser and recharge skin. I have tried this and the texture is lightweight and fast-absorbing. My skin feels plump up and smoothens after one application. 

Bye Bye Pore Clay Mask

I tried this clay mask on my 'T' zones section and it feels like usual other clay except for you will feel a bit of the hint of heat sensation, which I guess from that carbonize ingredients mentioned earlier. You just need to apply this around 10 to 15 minutes before rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. I did it for 10 minutes. I can feel this clay mask helps to revives and affiliates my skin by absorbing sebum and purifying the clogged pores which make my skin instantly radiant and clear.

Bye Bye Pore Drying Lotion

This is my first time applying drying lotion. At one glance, I thought this is our oldies happy lotion water-based foundation. Don't get me wrong. This is not even a foundation. huhuh..
This fast-acting drying lotion contains salicylic acid and tea tree oil to fight against pore problems and improve the appearance of troublesome skin. If you have uneven skin, apply this for a fair and flawless skin effect. I am really hooked by this lotion.

Bye Bye Pore Peeling Pad

I am an avid fan of Pure Beauty makeup remover wipes purely because of the texture of the wipes. This two-sided peeling pad helps to exfoliate and cleanse the skin by sweeping away dead skin and excess sebum. It helps soothing and refining your skin in just one step. Try this for yourself and you know what I mean by this. You won't regret!

So Smooth Pudding Cream

This water-based lightweight pudding cream not only look delicious but also heavenly effect onto your skin. Say bye-bye pigmentation, dryness, redness and dullness. One of my favourite moisturiser which gives me a fresh radiant and flawless rosy glow.
